The story that we are starting this half term with is 'Jack and the Beanstalk.' The children have started acting out the story as we read it. This will help to build the children's confidence and also to help them understand the story more thoroughly.
In maths we are learning about subtraction by using objects and taking away an amount. We are also going to practise counting backwards, revising telling the time and learning how to write teen numbers.
We are going to start doing a bit more writing every week to really develop the children's writing skills so that they become more independent. Every week we will practise writing a sentence so that the children become more confident with formation of letters, using finger spaces, using phonic knowledge to help with spelling and using full stops.
Please remember there are still some parent interviews happening on Tuesday evening and Friday morning. You should get a reminder text the day before - if you don't get the text please let us know as we may not have the right contact numbers for you.
If you haven't had a parent teacher interview please speak to Miss Banner or Mrs Sturman and they will book one for you.
Have a good week!
